.s. ambassador to libya, the ambassador who was killed on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi two nights ago. christopher stevens was an arabic speaker, a longtime student of libya. he had lived in the kuccountry and off for a long time. he understood the country well. in 2008 he wrote what in retrospect now seems to be an important and chilling memo about this particular place in libya. see, we'll show you. this is where libya is on the map of north africa. see libya sort of juts into the mediterranean at two different points, on the west side and on the east side. on the western side there, you see is tripoli. that is the capital of libya. but it is way over on the other peninsula on the right on the eastern part of the country where the city of benghazi is located. this place that christopher stevens, our ambassador who was just killed, the place he wrote about in 2008 in this cable that was uncovered by wikileaks, it's right there next to benghazi, the city of derna. in order to understand how it is we just had an ambassador murdered, it's worth knowing what the ambassador had to say

were ripped down and in egypt -- i'm sorry, in benghazi, we had an ambassador and three other people killed, his body dragged through the streets after it's reported in "the washington times," he was sodomized before he was killed. this wasn't supposed to happen under president obam a. he went to corow, world peace was going to break out as he went on this apology tour and this is part of his speech in cairo in 2009. >> i am grateful for your hospitality and the hospitality of the people of egypt. and i am also proud to carry with me the good will of the american people in a greeting of peace from muslim communities in my country.

veteran who served in missions from baghdad to benghazi. tyrone woods and glen doherty were former navy s.e.a.l.s who were working as diplomatic security officers at the u.s. consulate. the bodies were met by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton, vice president joe biden and president barack obama. >> but even as voices of mistrust and suspicion seem to divide countries and cultures from one another, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> we've seen the anti-american protests popping up in more than a dozen countries now, but not all of them have been violent like what we've seen in egypt or libya. many more of the protests have been peaceful like this one in pakistan, with muslim demonstrators voicing their anger over an anti-muslim film produced in the u.s. >> some of the largest anti-american protests have been in cairo where officials were forced to build large concrete walls in the streets just to keep protesters away from the u.s. embassy there. ian lee joins me now from cairo. we know at points there's been lots of people, thousands of people, at leas

are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what transpired. they want the world to know, this is not libya or an action that was supported by the vast majority of libyans. this most certainly is not why they want revolution. many of them reiterated against the fact that they expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said, all of them want to see their government disarm with these gangs that are roaming about with basically pure impunity. some of these gangs are remnants of the revolutionary forces that were established during the fighting that took place that has been robust to lay down their weapons for a variety of reasons. some are more extremists and they emerge from these evolution nary forces. this brings to light the sinister -- but outside of the authority of the government itself. the realization here very much that this is not the pa

of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. on the 18th, attacked and burned the flag and on the 6, even the red cross building was struck. and building toward crescendo which led to the death of the ambassador. and this attack that ended in the death of four americans were repelled by 15 minutes none of who apparently killed. so an armed force comes to the consulate and none of the guards were killed, either means they're in ka hoots or they fled. >> alisyn: why weren't we having warning signs? it was woefully inaccurate and far below the levels you usually see at the embassies. there weren't marines, apparently four video cameras and those were supposed to be working

and walked the streets of benghazi myself, and despite what we saw in that horrific incident where some mob was hijacked ultimately by a handful of extremists, the united states is extremely popular in libya and the outpouring of sympathy and support for ambassador stevens and his colleagues from the government and from people as evidence of that, the fact is, candy, that this is a turbulent time. it's a time of dramatic change. it's a change that the united states has backed because we understand tt when democracy takes root, when human rights and people's freedom of expression can be manifested, it may lead to turbulence in the short-term, but over the long-term, that is in the interest of the united states. the mobs we've seen on the outside of these embassies are small minority. they're the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes, and just as the people of these countries are not going to allow their lives to be hijacked by a dictator, they're not going to allow an extremist mob to hijack their future and their freedom, and we're going to continue to stand with
